Thanks, sauroid!  I have just removed the kangaroo figure from the package and found that it is a cleverly designed toy.





And here I have put some of the Britains wildlife figures in another display case  :)

I had boxes and boxes of these as a kid in the early 1970's. I used to collect the wild animals and my sisters had the farm animals. Every week when my Dad got paid we all went to the toy shop and were allowed to chose an animal each (they were all just a few pence each!). I had hundreds all in multiples. I must have had twenty crocs (both versions with the fixed and moving jaw). I remember the smallest wild figure was the Platypus. They were 5p each, I had around 10 but was always losing them! It was around 2cm long so easily done. I remember that they had a fantastic range of farm machinery. The tractors were particularly good. Needless to say, most of the wild animals were food for my Aurora Allosaurus!

Can't help to share the joy of getting this unopened(!) boxset.  The description said "metal and plastic models".  Wondering if there are metal parts inside ^-^

Thanks sauroid!  If you was I, will you open them or keep them intact in package?
